Easy, casual dining. A great neighborhood eatery!

We go there regularly as we can walk from our home. The food is consistent, sometimes the menu can be dated, but the food is always good. We love their cheese plates, order one every time, but the last time we ordered it, they were obviously not prepared to deliver it, so rather than tell us they... read more

I love this place. Really good food. The Classico Carbonara and Baked Brie was the best of the night.

1st time, quick trip to the Wine Exchange and we will definitely stop back for more. After a wine flight in Ybor, we headed here for another flight and though it was nowhere to be found on the menu, our waitress was more than accommodating to find the little papers that the wine flight info was on: 3 whites for...

Took a day trip to Hyde Park Tampa with a friend and was recommended to this place by a salesgirl in one of the shops. Thank you to her ! We were promptly seated out on the patio, ordered the Brie and fruit platter...delicious ! Then I had the blackened grouper sandwich with broccoli slaw...grouper was quite spicy, but was... More

I liked the food and the service was pretty good (though we got the wrong check and the payment had to be voided and rerun). The patio was a great spot to eat and I liked the idea of people being able to bring their dogs. I had the chicken piccatta which was darn good and the jalepeno appetizers were... More

On a day in Tampa running errands, we stopped at the Wine Exchange for lunch. Great food and service. We started with cocktails and a shrimp and scallop appetizer that was delicious. My husband loved his crab quiche with cesar salad. My salad topped with a crab cake and a skewer of grilled shrimp was perfect. The crab cake had... More

Nice buzz and good ambiance. Certainly not 5 star dining but our table of four all enjoyed their dinners. Service was uneven but we always managed to track down our server and track down what was forgotten. We find an OK bottle of wine (in an otherwise overpriced wine list).

The family that we visited the wine exchange with showed up at the restaurant about 15 minutes prior to us and were told we had a 30 minute wait for first available seating. We arrived and about an hour later we were finally seated, no apologies, nothing. Once we were finally seated the overall experience for the wait staff was... More

We just stopped in for drinks. They have a nice vibrant bar area. Only issue is that they cram way too many bar stools around the bar that makes it way too crowed and difficult to get off your stool for a bathroom break. Service was just okay. The bartender was professional and attentive but not outwardly friendly or inviting.... More

While visiting Hyde Park Village we ran into a wine and lunch stop. I have to say this is a must go to place if you are in the area. Many choices of wine but the food was fantastic. For sure not the normal burger and fries stop.
